    Nice truck..........for a Dodge. J/K It's a realy good looking truck. I like the shackels in the holes in the push plates, that's definatly a Maine thing. What are you doing with the GMC?

    having seperation anxiety...I definately miss that truck but after taking it to go get a sticker and the tech brought me to the truck on a lift and stuck a screw driver through the frame in like 5 different places a foot apiece i had to let her go...I no i wasnt much of a dodge fan either until this one goes great...yea the shackles was a better figure somthing out quick when i got stuck in a mud hole with it on the pipeline..haha.

    It surely is a nice truck for having 204xxx miles on it with the original drive train in it...would imagine tranny has been rebuilt at some point but all original....

    Very clean truck indeed. My '03 Ram has 161K on it, no rust anywhere with the origional tranny and engine without ever being rebuilt. Runs like a champ. It had spent it's whole life in New England.

    someone was determined to keep it forever...mine was garaged for the past 6 years...probably helped it out quite a bit...im pretty impressed with it...never plowed with a short truck before. handles the plow great and loves to push too....
